18 multi-megawatt turbines ordered by STEAG New Energies for a 43.2 MW wind

Hamburg, 27 September 2013. The Nordex Group has been awarded its largest
ever contract for a German wind farm with N117/2400 turbines by its new
customer STEAG New Energies GmbH. Located in a forest location in the
German state of Brandenburg, the 'Ullersdorf' project will comprise 18
N117/2400 turbines. In addition to supplying and installing the wind power
systems, Nordex will also be constructing the foundations. In order to
boost the efficiency of the project, STEAG New Energies has opted for
towers with a height of 141 metres, which require a technically complex

With the combination of the N117/2400 low-wind turbine and 141-metre
towers, the wind farm will produce a calculated annual yield of 115,900
MWh. The wind farm is able to supply up to around 29,000 four-person
households with clean electricity, thus preventing around 87,000 tons of
carbon dioxide emissions per year.

Work on the foundations will be commencing in early 2014, with the wind
farm scheduled to go into operation in October.

'This contract shows once more that our turbines make low-wind sites
economically viable. In addition, we have in STEAG New Energies a partner
by our side which has set itself clear growth targets for renewable
energies,' says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.

Looking forward, the STEAG Group wants to widen the proportion of renewable
energies in its power production portfolio to 25 percent. Says Dr. Stephan
Nahrath, management spokesman for STEAG New Energies GmbH: 'This wind farm
will help us to achieve the STEAG Group's strategic goal.'
